Johns Hopkins Gives Cameras to Baltimore Kids



One of the most celebrated photographers of the year was a self-taught Baltimorean who rose to prominence by shooting striking, candid images of his city during this year’s unrest and afterward. Thanks to a $1.6 million grant from the Mellon Foundation, Johns Hopkins’s new youth filmmaking program will help train more of Baltimore’s young people to document their world on film.
